Show Recap: Bobby Long at Rough Trade NYC 

Pancakes and Whiskey
Posted August, 20
By Lesley Keller
 
You could feel the anticipation in the air Saturday night at Rough Trade NY, where Bobby Long was set to headline. As I made my way into the venue, I was greeted by tons of familiar faces of Bobby fans, who I grew to know quite well as Bobby built his US reputation on the Lower East Side of New York City almost seven years ago.

(...) Bobby definitely kept the crowd in good spirits once he took the stage at about 11pm. With his hair still covering his eyes as it was all those years ago, but with a ton more confidence, Long launched into his first song without any hesitation, his gravelly voice enhancing the emotion and lyrics of his songs. I’ve seen Bobby play with a band many times before, but here he was solo, letting his skilled fingerpicking take center stage.

If there’s one thing you absolutely need to know about Bobby Long, it’s that he’s an expert storyteller. His songwriting is something that is quite rare to find these days, and what ultimately kept me following his career for so many years. You can also say he’s an expert storyteller in the form of crowd banter as well. Bobby consistently tells the funniest stories on stage that I’ve heard get genuine, doubled-over laughter from the crowd. Be it a story about how he wants to kill his sister’s ex husband which led into a song fittingly called “Kill Someone”, or if it’s about nothing in particular, Bobby has a quick wit that his absolutely unmatched. It truly helps makes his shows a MUST SEE.

Review: Music as Medicine at Rough Trade NYC 

The Bowery Presents
Posted August, 18
By A. Stein
 
It had been one of those weeks when upsetting news and disturbing images across the world seemed to fill an even greater percentage of our consciousness than usual—the kind of week that requires some good, honest music to remind you that there are still beautiful things out there. And thankfully, on Saturday night, Rough Trade NYC hosted a bill filled with acts that were just what the doctor ordered. (...)

Bobby Long, who is from NYC by way of London, closed out the night singing folk the old fashioned way—just a man and his guitar onstage. With hair covering his eyes and a heavy dose of Brit humor, Long was introspective with his music. Songs were introduced with quick jokes and “true story” anecdotes, but seemed to grow in his playing, with vivid emotional imagery and broader themes. Singing solo allowed Long to expand his vocals, repeating choruses each time with different emphasis, filling in nicely with bits of fingerpicked guitar.

Bobby Long: Americana Goes British 

The Aquarian
Posted August 13, 2014
By Alana Peladino

 
Wiltshire, UK native Bobby Long is bringing his eclectic mix of acoustic, folk and grunge to Brooklyn. With influences ranging from Woody Guthrie to Elliott Smith, you could definitely say he fully embodies all three; his latest album, Wishbone, was even recorded using Smith’s guitar and amp—that’s dedication! Long will perform at Rough Trade on Aug. 16.
